Pirates' Gerrit Cole gives up three runs in loss vs. Reds Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:47 pm ET) Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole took the loss Wednesday, allowing three earned runs on eight hits and two walks in five innings while striking out four in his team's 3-0 defeat against the Reds.

Cole (4-1) earned wins in four straight starts coming into Wednesday's start, giving up a total of three earned runs during that stretch. He matched that number against the Reds, allowing a pair of runs in the fourth inning and another on a solo home run in the fifth. It was just the second home run allowed by the righty this season.

Cole owns a 2.27 ERA and 39:10 K:BB ratio in 35 2/3 innings. He's slated to face the Phillies Monday.


Reds' Mike Leake tosses eight scoreless innings in win vs. Pirates
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:46 pm ET) Reds pitcher Mike Leake earned a win Wednesday, giving up just six hits in eight scoreless innings while striking out two and walking none in his team's 3-0 win over the Pirates.

Leake (2-1) tosses eight scoreless innings for his first win in his previous start and matched the impressive feat Wednesday, giving up no extra-base hits while issuing no walks for the second time this season.

Leake owns a 2.47 ERA and 27:10 K:BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Braves at home Monday.


Blue Jays' Mark Buehrle tosses five one-run innings in win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:43 pm ET) Blue Jays pitcher Mark Buehrle picked up a win Wednesday, giving up one earned run on six hits and one walk in five innings while striking out three in his team's 5-1 victory over the Yankees.

Buehrle (4-2) had given up 13 earned runs while taking losses in his previous two starts but bounced back nicely Wednesday, though he was removed after just 77 pitches. He was reported earlier this week to be battling aches and pains. The only run he allowed came on a groundout in the first inning, but his offense was able to take the lead by the end of the second and didn't relinquish it.

Buehrle owns a 6.00 ERA and 14:8 K:BB ratio in 33 innings. He's scheduled to face the Orioles in Baltimore Tuesday.


Yankees' CC Sabathia allows four runs in loss vs. Blue Jays
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:42 pm ET) Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia took the loss Wednesday, giving up four earned runs on nine hits and two walks in 6 1/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 5-1 loss to the Blue Jays.

Sabathia (0-5) was staked to a 1-0 lead after the first inning but let it slip away in the second, when he gave up a two-run single. He followed that up by allowing an RBI single in the fourth inning, while his final run surrendered came on a solo home run in the sixth.

Sabathia has posted a 5.45 ERA and 29:8 K:BB ratio in 38 innings while delivering just two quality starts in his six outings. He's scheduled to face the Rays Monday.


White Sox P Nate Jones (elbow) to throw this week
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(9:23 pm ET) Though he's not expected to return for game action until the middle of the season, White Sox pitcher Nate Jones (elbow) will throw for his coaches this week, according to ESPN.com

"I was telling somebody earlier it's like I'm finally seeing a little bit of the light," Jones said. "I'm trying not to get too far ahead of myself, but I've been throwing off the mound without pain and that's a huge accomplishment from last year."

Jones suffered an elbow injury a year ago which required Tommy John surgery. He's still about two months away from coming back. 


Mariners P Tom Wilhelmsen participates in simulated game
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(9:19 pm ET) Mariners pitcher Tom Wilhelmsen threw 25 pitches in a simulated game on Wednesday, according to MLB.com. 

Wilhelmsen has been on the 15-day disabled list with a hyperextended elbow. This is a positive sign for Wilhelmsen, who will still need a minor-league assignment before re-joining the Mariners. 

“It was good to see batters and how my stuff looks with a batter in there from both sides,” Wilhelmsen said. “I felt free and easy today. I threw all my pitches and everything felt good. We’ll figure out the next step a little later.”


Rockies' Drew Stubbs slugs second homer in Game 1 of DH
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:26 pm ET) Rockies outfielder Drew Stubbs smacked a two-run home run in his only at-bat in his team's 13-7 loss to the Diamondbacks in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Stubbs was called upon to pinch-hit in the eighth inning and delivered his second home run of the season; unfortunately, it only reduced his team's deficit to seven runs. The outfielder went 0 for 20 in April but is now 2 for 6 with two home runs in May.


Rockies' Nick Hundley slugs second homer in Game 1 of DH
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:23 pm ET) Rockies catcher Nick Hundley went 2 for 3 with a home run and three RBI in his team's 13-7 loss to the Diamondbacks in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Hundley's hitting streak is now up to 10 games and includes five multihit performances. He picked up his first RBI with a fifth-inning sacrifice fly and added another on a solo home run in the seventh. In the eighth, he knocked a double deep to center field to tally his third RBI for the game, which is a season high for the catcher.

Hundley has hit .343/.390/.529 with two home runs and eight RBI in 70 at-bats.


Reds 1B Joey Votto ejected from Wednesday's game
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8:18 pm ET) Reds first baseman Joey Votto was ejected from Wednesday's game at Pittsburgh after he bumped an umpire, reports ESPN's Baseball Tonight.

Votto was 0 for 2 with one strikeout in the game before being ejected. It is his fifth career ejection.


Rockies' Justin Morneau homers in Game 1 of DH Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:17 pm ET) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau went 3 for 5 with a home run and two RBI in his team's 13-7 loss to the Diamondbacks in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader.

The Diamondbacks were able to jump out to a 9-0 lead by the end of the fourth inning, but Morneau was able to put his team on the board with a solo home run in the fifth before adding an RBI on a double in the bottom of the ninth to bring home the 20th and final run of the game.

Morneau has hit .291/.322/.453 with three home runs and nine RBI.
